IS TIFFANY TWIVEY JUST ANOTHER LAWYER ARRESTED FOR DOING HER LAWYERING JOB?

by JOHN STEWARD

At the very least, she unashamedly tried to paint that picture on the eve of her arrest. But what is really the case against Twivey? Off Course, Fraud Squad Officers cannot arrest a lawyer for “merely acting on her client’s instructions”. Was she in this case? You bet!

Information available in the public domain reveal that when news broke out that a Warrant of Arrest was out for the arrest of Daire Vele, Tiffany wrote to Director of Fraud Squad and advised that her client (Vele) was out of the country and would be making himself available for question as soon as he returned. She deliberately diverted the attention of the Fraud Squad Officers to ensure that her client was not arrested whilst she worked on Court documents to set aside the warrant.

My inquiries with well-placed sources reveal that Tiffany acted improperly and criminally when she filed an application to set aside a warrant of arrest issued by the District Court against Daire Vele, Secretary for Treasury. I…

PRIME MINISTER'S LAWYER ISSUES THREAT TO SUE ME FOR DEFAMATION

by BRYAN KRAMER

I received a report that the Prime Minister’s Lawyer Ms Tiffany Twivey has issued a threat to sue myself and the Administrators of PNG News over the publication of my last article headlined: So PM's Lawyer Claims Fraud Squad are Rogue Cops; Politically Motivated?
Ms Twivey emailed the administrators of PNG News, claiming my article was just a ridiculous lie about her and extremely defamatory. She also went further to state she is going to sue me and every single admin on PNG News for defamation and also complain to the police for us to be charged criminally for defamation and harassment unless we remove all lies and defamatory statements about her.

To support her claims Ms Twivey noted three main grounds:
1) She said nothing, posted nothing in no media medium. She hasn't even issued anything, she is not even on Facebook any more.
2) That I said Mr Hamou should get a more reputable and competent lawyer to replace her.
3) That I said that she signed a con…

SO PM'S LAWYER CLAIMS FRAUD SQUAD ARE ROGUE COPS - POLITICALLY MOTIVATED?

Image
byBRYAN KRAMER

Prime Minister Peter O'Neill’s infamous lawyer Ms Tiffany Twivey and for-hire political publicist Ms Merrell claim the recent arrest of Deputy Secretary of Treasury Mr. Aloysius Hamou was carried out by rogue cops though intimation and based on political motives.

Director of National Fraud & Anti-corruption Directorate Mathew Damaru and his Deputy Timothy Gitua laid formal charges against Mr. Hamou on Thursday 28th January 2016 under Section 92(1) of the Criminal Code (Abuse of Office). He was charged for his alleged part in the illegal procurement (purchase) of two turbine generators for K50 million paid to Israeli company LR Group by the Department of Treasury.

I broke the story on social media on Friday afternoon (29/1/16). An immediate response was issued from Ms Merrell and Ms Twivey. This was expected on account that their client, Peter O'Neill, is heavily implicated in the unlawful transaction. Ms Merrell posted a rather convoluted re…

PETER O’NEILL’S FOREIGN FEMALE FRIENDS DOING BUSINESS IN PNG WITH IMPUNITY

Image
by MICHAEL J PASSINGAN

Incredible as it may seem, existing evidence with the Investment Promotion Authority (IPA) indicates that three foreign female friends of the Prime Minister Peter O’Neill have falsely claimed to be Papua New Guinean by Nationality or they have knowingly allowed false information regarding their Nationality to be wrongly registered with IPA – perhaps deliberately for the purpose of carrying on certain activities in Papua New Guinea - without due regard and compliance to existing laws and regulations; and possibly for the avoidance of paying certain fees such as high work permit fees (per annum) to the Department of Labour and Industrial Relations in Port Moresby.

Under the Investment Promotion Act 1992 consolidated to No 3 of 2004, ““foreign enterprise" means an enterprise which is not a national enterprise or a citizen; and “"national enterprise" means an enterprise more than 50% of which is owned directly or indirectly by a citizen,…”. This means t…

WHAT SUSAN MERRELL THOUGHT OF TIFFANY NONGGORR BACK THEN.

They were once not the best of buddies so what has brought them together?


Read some inside info on Tiffany Gaye Nonggorr (Tiffany Twivey), courtesy of DR Susan Merrell
“Her legal practices, set up with Maladina, I believe could be a front for laundering money through her trust account.  The amounts that it's mooted she was paid for her advice is far too high.  It's a way of getting money, supposedly legitimately, out f (sic) government coffers.  Maladina is a very shrewd and crooked politicain (sic) (great shame, I've met him and liked him a lot) Had a drink with him one night in POM when Tiffany had left for Lae.  (She'd introduced me.) Didn't know then about the affair - found out the next day when she returned.  But the private date had obviously been playing on her mind.  It was moses idea and was perfectly innocent apart froma bit of harmless flirtation.”
“At a guess, I'd say he's hanging on to the relationship because he's using her practice…

Many risks to PNG mining boom as landowners fight projects

ROWAN CALLICK

AUSTRALIAN investment in Papua New Guinea's resurgent resources sector is booming, but the risks have been underlined by dramatic events.
There was a violent raid on a construction camp at Kikori for the $16.5 billion ExxonMobil-Oil Search-Santos liquefied natural gas project.
Kikori is in Gulf province northwest of Port Moresby.
As well, the developers have won the latest round of a colossal court battle over the disposal of tailings from the $1.8bn Ramu Nickel mine, under construction by Chinese state-owned giant Metallurgical Construction Corporation, with Brisbane-based Highlands Gold a minority stakeholder.
The common theme in both cases is the role of frustrated, opportunistic or worried landowners.
The attack at Kikori came at night, when no one was working at the site, so there were no injuries, but a Caterpillar 740 dumptruck -- which routinely costs $250,000 secondhand -- and another truck were destroyed by fire, and other equipment was damaged severely, some of …

Plaintiffs disappear and pull out of PNG waste dumping case

LIAM FOX


There are fears for the safety of three missing landowners involved in a case against a big nickel mine in Papua New Guinea.
The lawyer acting for a group of landowners, trying to stop a mine from dumping waste into the sea, says she has not heard from her clients since Sunday afternoon. Tiffany Nonggorr says other people connected to the case have been threatened and bashed.
"I'm concerned that they've been hurt or held against their will," she said. In March, the landowners won a temporary injunction preventing the Ramu nickel mine from building a deep-sea tailings pipeline to dump waste into Astrolabe Bay off Madang.
A judge was due to begin hearings today to decide whether to lift the ban or make it permanent. Ms Nonggorr says she does not know what the plaintiffs' disappearances mean for the case. "I have absolutely no idea. All we can do is try and locate them," she said.
Police say they will be out in force around the courthouse to keep the pe…

Climate change expert Ross Garnaut behind controversial PNG mines

Image
AAPSeptember 09, 2010

CLIMATE-change expert Ross Garnaut is linked with two companies accused of using a controversial method of releasing mine waste into rivers and the ocean in Papua New Guinea. Professor Garnaut conducted the Rudd government's 2008 climate-change review which urged action on the issue, including an emissions trading scheme.
But the economist also chairs Lihir Gold, a mining company which has merged with Newcrest Gold, and he is a director of OK Tedi Mining Limited.

Lihir was the subject of a takeover bid by Newcrest Mining and Prof Garnaut will relinquish his $US300,000 ($A327,225) role as a result of the merger.

The Lihir group is set to produce one million ounces of gold a year on Lihir Island, 900km north of Port Moresby.

OK Tedi extracts copper, gold and silver from its remote Star Mountains operation in PNG's Western Province where it reportedly discharges 56 million tonnes of metalliferous waste into local river syst…
